No. "recode" behaves as documented, not "svn". And even if it is
documented, it is still a very bad behavior as there are other
(say, more valid) ways to get the same mtime while the contents
are different. Programs whose behavior is based on timestamps
are bad (this is the case for "make", for historical reasons,
but Subversion is rather new and shouldn't go this way).
